Sicily, Italy: Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guides

Eyewitness Sicily Top 10

The island of Sicily is Italy’s largest region and is also it’s most varied. In terms of geography, there are offshore islands, endless coastline, rugged mountains, rolling Wheatfield’s and volcano’s, but its history and architecture are also of note. Sicily formed a significant part of the Greek empire, was strategically vital to Rome, and was invaded by the Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, French, Spanish and Bourbons, before unifying with Italy. Each conquest left its mark, to create a palimpsest of cultures on the island. – Reprinted from the Eyewitness Top 10 Guide to Sicily

What I like about the Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guide to Sicily, Italy:

  • The Eyewitness Top 10 books outline things to see in groups of ten. There are dozens of Top 10 lists in each book. They list the top 10 things to do by city and then give you such things as Top 10 beaches, Top 10 festivals, wines, restaurants, etc. They also tell you the Top 10 Things to Avoid, Top 10 Shopping Tips, Top 10 Tips for Families, Top 10 Ways to Stay on A Budget, etc.
  • When you consider cost, size, weight and information it is hard to beat these books
  • The best thing about these books are that they are small enough to fit in your pocket
  • Each item listed has a short description, a very short description.
  • Addresses, hours of operation, phone numbers and a cost guide are included for each entry. The information is up-to-date and accurate
  • There is a phrase book at the end of each book
  • The books provide you with interesting facts and trivia

What I Don’t Like about the Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guide to Sicily, Italy:

  • The print is small, very small. If you use glasses to read, you will need extra strength glasses to see the print in these books
  • The information provided is good but it is very limited. If you read these books expecting to learn all about Italy you will be very disappointed
  • You are left to wonder what the 11th best thing to do or see is
